An article on how IGL brings benefit to both young and old

January 12, 2017 |

An article published on 4th january 2017 in The Conversation highlights how shared spaces between young children and older people bring benefit to both generations.

The article also stresses the importance of professional training on IGL and the quality of the daily interactions between children and older adults: ‘Interaction between the generations is not as simple as putting a baby and toddlers’ day care centre in a nursing home, however’, says the author, Lecturer in Dementia Studies at Bangor University.

These aspects are at the centre of the TOY approach and will be further developed over the coming years through the project TOY-PLUS.
